That is one of the potent reasons why William Farnum makes such a splendid and heroic figure in "Rough and Ready," his newest and tremendously interest Ing de luxe production. Mr. Farnum has the role of Bill Stratton, who haa always led a higli-prtncipled life, and who is as square with his fellow-men as he is with biro self. He saves the home of a dear friend from disruption, but his mas"-terly handling of the" situation has a most pathetic result. Evelyn Dnrant, to whom he is'engaged and in whom he has found his ideal, misconstrues a situation in which she finds Stratton and breaks off their troth. The man's hopes are dashed to oarth. His faith In everything good and fine and true is almost shattered. He determines to sever ail the ties that bind him to a city of hypocrisy.

The excellent cast and bewitching chorus help to make the performance complete while the tuneful music is n tower ot strength, since it is of the sort that makes the head nod and foot tap. There, are four scenes in three acts, opening on the Root garden ot the New,York Theatre, during the final rehearsal of a big musical extravaganza, The second act takes place at Colonel Stone's home near an aviation field, Miami, Pla., while,the last act a tableau ilhowing a desolate battlefield "Somewhere In'France"- #nitppreBBive! scene dissolving into the Goddess of Liberty, and tlie performance closes with a wonderfully clever flag effect of costumes, "Lib-,-^rty Forever." ANGLICAN CREED Toronto, Sept. 18. - Arclidoacon Patterson-Smythe, at tlia (Anglican synod today, declared that the creed should be left in the prayer book of the church without any rubric directing its use. ' Rev. Dr. Cayley, Toronko, strongly opposed the retention ot tlie anathema or minatory clauses of tlie A than-asian creed, but he did not want the other clauses containing the masterly exposition of the trinity oxpurged completely. He urged the synod lo adopt the creed without any o� the minatory clauses and moved a resolution .striking out verses 1, 2. 28, L'H, hX and 42. Bishop BldewoH of Ontario asked how this could bo done in face of article 8, which 'provideH tiiat tlio Athanaslan creed "ought thoroughly to be received and helievert." Prof, Abbott.
